Bad Money

Our debt-based fiat money system poses an existential threat
Friday, September 14, 2018, 6:51 PM

We’re all going to have to be a lot more resilient in the future.  The long emergency, as Jim Kunstler put it, is now upon us.  It comes from every direction, and the trick is going to be remaining alert, oriented and positive.

If ever there was a wake-up call from the natural world it was this year’s weather events combined with the storms from last year.  » Read more

The End Of Cheap Debt: The Fall & Rise Of Interest Rates

Perhaps the greatest single trend impacting the next decade
Friday, September 7, 2018, 6:54 PM

Total debt (public + private) in America is currently at a staggering $67 trillion.

That number has been rising fast over the past 47 years, following the US dollar's transformation into a fully-fiat currency in August of 1971.

Perhaps this wouldn't be such a big concern were America's income, measured by GDP, we're growing at a similar rate. But it's not. » Read more

The Whole System Is Rigged

From elections to media to the markets, it's all controlled
Friday, August 31, 2018, 7:57 PM

Crop failures have hit hard across Europe. Australia is under an intense drought. Warm water representing ‘archived heat’ has penetrated deep into the arctic.  Coral reefs are dying through mass bleachings. The stocks of ocean fisheries are in deep trouble. Insect and bird populations remain in a state of collapse.

It couldn't be any more clear that our society's demands for ever-more "growth" are taking an increasingly dangerous toll. "Growth" is now the enemy of life on the planet; yet there are precious few leaders willing to admit as much. 

What we need is less pressure on vital ecological systems and precious remaining resources. But good luck finding a politician willing to admit that. » Read more

Knowledge Capital Excursion: Defensive Training

If you own a firearm, do you know how to use it safely?
Monday, August 27, 2018, 6:01 PM

A month ago, we asked the Peak Prosperity audience if it had any interest in meeting up with Chris and me in the real world to learn and hone resiliency skills. The response from PP users was overwhelmingly supportive of this idea (over 80% rated it either a 4 or 5 out of 5).

An opportunity has come along that we think is a good candidate for our first event in this series. And there are only a few spots left for it at this point. » Read more

What If There Isn't Enough Energy Going Forward?

We'll be forced to live with less. Maybe a LOT less.
Friday, August 24, 2018, 7:09 PM

Currently the media is breathlessly cheering the record amounts of US oil production.

Technology advances in the fracking process have enabled the "shale miracle", resulting in the US producing over 10 million barrels per day for the first time since the 1970s. Think of all the incremental GDP growth that excess oil will power! » Read more

We Are All Lab Rats In The Largest-Ever Monetary Experiment In Human History

And how do things usually work out for the rat?
Friday, August 17, 2018, 7:10 PM

This global flood of freshly-printed 'thin air' money has no parallel in the historical records. All around the world, each of us is part of a grand experiment being conducted without the benefits of either prior experience or controls. Its outcome will be binary: either super-great or spectacularly awful.

If the former, then no worries. We'll just continue to borrow and spend in ever-greater amounts -- forever. Perpetual prosperity for everyone!

But if things hit a breaking point, then you had better be prepared for some truly bad times. » Read more

David Stockman: The World Economy Is At An Epochal Pivot

A 'Great Reset' approaches
Friday, August 10, 2018, 7:00 PM

David Stockman warns that the global economy has reached an "epochal pivot", a moment when the false prosperity created from $trillions in printed money by the world's central banks lurches violently into reverse.

Stockman's main warning is that there's no bid underneath this market -- that when perception shifts from greed to fear, the bottom is much farther down than most investors realize. In his words, it's "rigged for implosion".
 
He predicts a Great Reset is imminent. One that, for those who see it coming and take prudent action today, will offer tremendous, perhaps once-in-a-lifetime, investment opportunity once the dust settles.
